IWA World Water Congress and Exhibition focuses on future

The International Water Association (IWA) World Water Congress and Exhibition’s three themes will focus on the future of the water industry and its issues when it takes place on 16–21 September 2018.

The IWA World Water Congress and Exhibition, hosted at the Tokyo International Exhibition Centre ‘Tokyo Big Sight’, will comprise three key themes: utilities of the future, cities of the future and basins of the future.

Each stream will feature different tracks covering a range of industry issues and topics; there are a total of six tracks:

  • water utility management
  • wastewater management and resource recovery
  • drinking water and potable water reuse
  • urban water systems
  • communities, integrated planning and the enabling environment
  • large-scale water management.

The congress is a global event for water professionals covering the entire water cycle, attracting more than 5,500 water, environment and related professionals from more than 100 countries.

The event offers insights into how pioneering science, technological innovation and leading practices shape the major transformation in water management.

Each edition of the congress emphasises issues of interest to the country its hosted in, which rotates each event.

As the event will be hosted in Japan this year, the key focuses are the digital economy, megacities, diffusion of innovation, disaster resilience and sustainability.

A range of registration options for the event are available online at regular prices, from €445 to €1,295 (US$520 to US$1,514), until Sunday 9 September, after which on site prices apply.
